Simplicity

I finished up this little piece and decided it didn't need much in the way of a binding. I remembered a tutorial I read at marvelesartstudios for her version of a faux piping and decided to give it a try.

Do you see where there's just a little peaking out here and there? That's how it's supposed to be. I think it works great on the gentle curves of this piece which measures about 8 3/4 by 10 inches.
It's all done done except the loop hook in the back.
Now I just have to decide if I should list it on line or put it in the shop downtown.
